The island town of Busuanga relaxed its restrictions on incoming guests as COVID-19 cases continue to decline.

The antigen or RT-PCR test requirement for vaccinated individuals was removed by town mayor Elizabeth Cervantes in Executive Order No. 128-2022 issued on Monday.

Only partially or non-vaccinated individuals have to show negative antigen/RT-PCR tests within 72 hours of boarding time.

If the accompanying parent or legal guardian is completely vaccinated, the COVID-19 test may be waived for traveling minors aged five to 11 years old who have not yet been vaccinated.

For children below five years old, antigen or RT-PCR test results are also no longer going to be asked if their parents or accompanying adults have been fully vaccinated.

Busuanga has remained COVID-free for the past three weeks.
